Journalist Unions In Ebola-Affected Countries To Get Funding

MONROVIA, November 21 (LINA) - The African Media Initiative (AMI) has announced an Ebola Special Fund for the Unions of Journalists in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

During the just-ended Consultative Forum on Media Strategies organized by AMI in Nairobi, Kenya, it was reported that the fund will financially support the “brave journalists working tirelessly to cover one of the hardest stories in history.”

According to a dispatch from AMI in Nairobi, the forum which brought together media executives and managers from Africa, noted that the story of the Ebola disease is robbing their countries and its people of developmental advances.

The Consultative Forum on Media Strategies was the first of its kind, and was launched by AMI’s new CEO Eric Chinje, who presented AMI’s three-year strategy and invited other media organizations to create new partnerships that would help the media sector grow.

AMI brings media owners together and seeks to find solutions to perennial problems facing the industry such as the lack of financing and solid business models, as well as difficulties in accessing the advertising market or even just good internet connectivity.
